London School of Marketing has partnered with the University of Northampton to offer international students a UK accredited degree.

London School of Marketing specialises in offering international students a UK accredited qualification without the need to come to Britain. Much of the learning is delivered online and students submit coursework from their home country using their home computer or mobile device.

Students come from a huge number of nations including Qatar, Pakistan, China, Jordan, India, Nigeria, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Dubai, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Azerbaijan, Sudan and Kazakhstan. 

Courses offered include a MA in Human Resource Management, LLM International Commercial Law and a MBA top up.

The new initiative with the University of Northampton began in March and has already seen more than 130 students enroll on the courses.

This is the second UK university to join forces with the educator. Cambridge based Anglia Ruskin began partnering with them in February 2009. 

Since then 11,540 students have enrolled on the courses, which include MBA’s, MA and Bsc Hons qualifications, with 9,450 graduating so far.

CFO of London School of Marketing, Anton Dominique said: “The partnership with the University of Northampton means we can offer our students a wider selection of courses to choose from. In particular for those looking to do a specialised postgraduate qualification such as Human Resources, Accounting, Finance or Law.

“Since first teaming up with Anglia Ruskin University we’re seen a big increase in the number of students looking to gain a UK University accredited degree. As a successfully established online course provider of educational qualifications, we will continue to expand our product portfolio, in order to meet the rising needs of international students."
